INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — LeBron James scored 40 points, superstar sidekick Dwyane Wade added 30 — 22 in the second half — and Miami's dynamic duo took over after halftime to bring the Heat even in the series with a 101-93 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal Sunday.
